Ike Callaway is an islander who understands the unique challenges faced by those who own an island home. Before moving to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Ike was a veterinarian running a successful equine practice in the Lexington, Kentucky area. His years spent running his own business, dealing with diverse clients in any number of critical scenarios, makes his services very different from other property management providers.
In Ike’s own words… “In order to serve the various needs of my clients, my years as a professional embedded the value and absolute importance of having unsurpassed integrity and honesty and the necessity of being a great listener and communicator. My “word” is my bond.”
Ike brings that same honesty and integrity to The House Butler. He understands the toll mother nature can take on an island property. He spent his first ten years on the island as an absentee property owner and the last 27 years as a permanent resident in “The Lowcountry.” Ike’s experience designing, building and maintaining multiple homes has given him a unique perspective into all that can happen to properties on Hilton Head Island under the best circumstances, much more if left unattended.
“Mother Nature” can take its toll in many ways. Wind, rain, humidity, rodents, insects and various other critters are always trying to find their way into an island property. Ike will use his diagnostic skills to assess your property, beginning with listening to any concerns you may have about your home in general. Once your needs and expectations have been established, a hands-on approach is taken.
Ike will spend his time walking the property, feeling potential trouble spots for moisture or damage, paying attention to certain smells; the same types of property assessment checks he would perform on his own home. In addition, he will work to make sure vendors are held responsible for the work they are contracted to perform. Routine maintenance should be performed on mechanical systems to make sure they are functioning properly.
Excellent service and quality client care, that is what The House Butler is known for. These qualities are derived from the honesty, integrity and trust that define Ike. He will care for, and treat your property as if it were his own to make sure your needs are met. His pledge is, “Your Home Is Safe While You’re Away”. Contact The House Butler today and see how Ike can best serve your needs while helping with your enjoyment of owning a second home. Ike would love the chance to earn your business as a loyal client.
